Poured from bottle into a pint glass: Pours golden yellow with a thick, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn, and pils stink. Taste is more of the same, a slightly sweet corn water with some pils characteristics, and surprisingly a little bit of fruit. It’s a standard lager, maybe slightly better than Bud Heavy. High carbonation, light body. It’s ok.

12 FL OZ (12 pack $9.99) A beer thats kept alive by a brilliant marketing team but aside from the hype this is not very good.

Clear Golden beer, small while head, standard carbonation, weak nose, with some dough aromas, light body, not too much flavor, watery sensation from the begin to the end, without an specific aftertaste.

Bottle from the store. Pours a pale yellow with super slight cream colored head. Aroma of cheap malts. Taste pretty much the same.

Bottle. Yeah man, I’m the most interesting man in the world now. I don’t drink piss often, but when I feel like the highest quality of skunk piss I turn to.......Dos Equis. It is the best piss you will ever taste.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Taken or what it is, this isn’t a bad beer. Grains, corn and light citrus finish. Crisp, but finish it while it’s still cold.
